I'm sure this topic has come up before, so forgive me. My problem seems to be that our eMac is becoming harder & harder to start. When I go power it up from off, either I get just a dead screen & the sound of the fan or a series of beebs and staticy clicks & the power light flashes, again with a dead screen and the fan. The problem seems to be getting progessively worse, before after a few tries, it will power up & run perfectly. But now it seems to be getting harder to power it up. We did upgrade to a new iMac this year, but I still love my old eMac and am not quite ready to say goodbye (mainly because it I still have programs on it I use & haven't been able to afford to upgrade yet). Is it the end of the line for it or is there something that can be dine within a reasonable cost? Any suggestions would be great, thanks.
